Baby Care

The first months as a parent can be overwhelming. Stay on top of things by learning how to bond with your baby and by knowing how to "read" your baby's behaviour.

Whether we are talking about settling and sleeping, feeding time, or creating a daily schedule for your baby, in this section you will find a collection of tips dedicated to baby care.

These tips are especially useful to first time parents, who might want to learn more about how they can use these first months to create beautiful memories with their babies.

    For first-time families, it is hard to know when to start considering and planning for their baby’s first step into early childhood education and care.

    Starting Blocks, ACECQA’s family focused website, in association with Playgroup NSW, has developed a fun infographic to help new families prepare for their child’s learning journey.

    This illustrated journey places strong emphasis on play-based learning and encourages families to consider their local playgroup.
